Fight Fat After Forty

Fight Fat After Forty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a fact: stress makes you fat. Renowned clinician and scientist Dr. Pamela Peeke goes beyond diet and exercise with a lifestyle program that shows women how to stop being diet "POWs" ("Prisoners Of Weight") or victims of "Toxic Stress" and how to evolve into physically and mentally stress-resilient individuals. Peeke helps women identify their stress-eating profiles (Are you a stress-overeater? A stress-undereater?) and explains that to remove weight, you have to lift weight. She explains what to eat and, equally as important, when to eat by navigating the afternoon "CortiZone," the hours of highest vulnerability to stress eating. Learn how to put it all together through the fine art of regrouping.

Women can tailor this accessible program to their individual needs using Peeke's three behavior templates:

* Stress-resilient nutrition

* Stress-resilient physical activity

* Stress-resilient regrouping

Dr. Peeke's program is a must for women who want to break the stress-fat cycle that has thickened their after-forty waistlines.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, the "Fight Fat After Forty" program can be tailored to women's individual needs as they shed toxic, stress-induced weight forever. Dr. Peeke gives a three-pronged approach for creating a stress profile, determining body type, and using three "sacred templates".
